Not a bad attempt for a big corporate brewer. Style is basically the same as Hoegaarden White. A nice cloudy, wheaty brew with a slightly perfumey aroma. Some elements of spice and citrus. I would still prefer the Hoegaarden but for a bit american corporate brew it’s amazing they did so well.

UPDATED: NOV 12, 2005 Rerate Been awhile since I had one, have not missed much. Very muddled in all aspects. Still a better bet than a Bud Light, but not a true Wit. Missing the spiciness and zing. Original 3.6 Very cloudy appearance - very wheaty - lives up to its type - unlike some other macro-micro wheats found nowadays. Tangy, a good compliment to Mexican food.

Very good appearance in a tall glass, but alittle on the weak side when it comes to taste---Cellis is better. Moonie had a little of that "big beer company" after taste---preservatives added?

Attractive, rather appropriate wit appearance, cloudy, good coloration. Head disappates instantly. Oh, you say this is contract brewed by Coors? A bit of a plastic odor, but also a fair amount of corriander and lemon zest. Has a refreshing, sour yeastiness to it, and a good spice tang. I prefer wits to be more assertive, and this one falls into that range. Impressive qualtiy considering the psudo-macro scale at which this is probably produced.

UPDATED: MAY 8, 2003 I was a little worried when I ordered this - I knew it was a coors product. Much to my surprise, this was nicely spiced, smooth, fruity/citrusy. My only complaint would be that it was a little too thin on the palate. A nice choice when a real belgian isn't available.

Yuck. I know Hoegaarden and Blue Moon (read Coors) You’re NO Hoegaarden. I bought a sixer of this, drank about half a glass of the one bottle and took the other five back to the packie. :P

It’s not Hoegaarden, but not bad for something that comes from Coors.

A decent beer. There are definitely some things in this I wouldn’t have expected being the whole Marco thing. Citrus is evident, but very light. Some nice spicyness. It’s just not my style.
